Lindsay Lohan Arrest Warrant:

Paparazzi Defense

3/16/2009 9:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay LohanWe know exactly why Lindsay Lohan is being hauled into court Monday and it's no big deal -- probably.

Here's why an arrest warrant was issued. Lindsay was in an alcohol ed program for more than a year and was in full compliance with her probation. Sources say not too long ago she decided to switch programs. She either was late or missed one of the classes at the new program -- she says because the paparazzi made it impossible for her to show up on schedule. So the program director sounded the alarm last week to the court. And that's why the judge issued a warrant.

Based on what we know this is not a big deal and Lindsay's new lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, should be able to have the warrant 86'd -- no problemo. The only wild card: There's a new judge on the case and she's really tough.

We're told Lindsay will not show for the appearance unless the judge decides she wants her there.

Stay tuned.

She has to hide from her own gay bashing father...and she has to hide from TMZ.She has to hide from hell~LA`s system of the downed the street thugs and the guys who want to turn her OUT.She is a money maker artiste and that they can`t take away from her.She needs a better studio team for backup and to stay working...for now.

Yeah, right, the paparazzi make it impossible to show up for class on time???? That's a new one. I'm sure she makes it to her club on time to party and the paparazzi don't get in her way then......

If that were the case, how come the paparazzi doesn't keep her from going out partying. The paparazzi isn't too much for her then. What a waste she is. She isn't cute anymore, and yes she has ruined her career.

This whole Paparazzi defense doesnt hold water. if I was the judge and her lawyer used this as her defense for the No-Shows at the rehab I would tell him that his client is a celebrity and along with that fame comes the added attention specifically the Paps. If they arent stopping her from doing other things, such as going to clubs then she sure as hell could have made those appointments. As far as this warrent ruining her career... no mam, your activities that led to your arrests did this to your career.

If she doesn't clean up her act. Noone will want her in Hollywood until she does! What does Lindsay see in Sam anyway? Does Sam have a great tongue? They seem to be constantly arguing! So is Lindsay running down the same road as Rhianna?
I honestly hope the judge throws the book at her! They need to stop pampering all these Celebrities! They are enabled and spoiled too much. She needs to be held ACCOUNTABLE!
She has talent. Too bad shes not behaving responsibly.
